Dominique Sylvain worked as a journalist in Paris before relocating to Asia where she lived for spells in Japan and Singapore. She is the author of thirteen crime novels and now lives once more in Tokyo where she writes full-time.
'Dominique Sylvain's thriller has the usual twists and turns - and the obligatory dead body - expected of a crime novel. But what sets this typical piece apart from the others is the sleuths out to unmask the killer ... The writing is superb' Philip Robinson, The Irish Examiner.
'An echo of Chandler's gallant, world-weary Philip Marlowe ... Sylvain successfully weaves a spider's web of unexplained events, suspicions and compelling motivations' Glasgow Herald.
